Rebbe Aharon (R. Aharele) Roth – (1894-1947) established groups of men dedicated to the worship of G-d in Budapest and in Satmar, under the name Shomeri Emunim. In 1925, he immigrated to Jerusalem where he founded a similar group of Chassidim. He returned to his followers in Satmar and later Beregsaz, from 1930-1939, returning eventually to Jerusalem where he reorganized his holy group, perpetuated until this day through the Chassidic communities of Toldot Aharon, Shomrei Emunim, Toldot Avraham Yitzchak, Mevakshei Emunah and others
The present notebooks serve as an early, authentic documentation of the rebbe's group of Chassidim, which in those days only numbered several dozen members.


7 notebooks + single leaves, altogether over 100 leaves. Size and condition vary. Overall good condition.
The present records were part of the estate of the Maamadot collector, R. Avraham Mordechai Yozevitch of Batei Ungarin, Jerusalem; his stamps appear in some notebooks.
